Experiences w/ Drive Imaging Software?
I have successfully backed up and restored both windows and linux machines with partimage: http://www.partimage.org/.
- It compresses (gzip or bzip2) the allocated parts of filesystems, and leaves out the unallocated.
- It can work in client server mode over the network.
- It can automatically split files, e.g., on the 2G boundary
- Available on live bootable linux cd:s such as knoppix
